Drake beefs up security as Kanye West feud escalates after furious Twitter rant
The Canadian rapper, 32, lives within half a mile of the Kanye, 41, and Kim Kardashian, 38, and is taking no chances after their rivalry turned considerably more ugly.
According to TMZ, Drizzy has drafted in two new security guards to mind his gated driveway, which also houses a new SUV.
A representative for Drake declined to comment.
Kim K warned Drake to "never threaten" Kanye again after her husband hit out at his rival on social media.
Kanye reignited the pair's bitter feud after the Canadian rapper's team requested the use of a song they had previously collaborated on.
Things appeared to turn nasty when Kanye claimed he'd received a threatening phone call from Drake.
Kim then weighed in, tweeting Drake directly: "Never threaten my husband or our family. He paved the way for there to be a Drake."
She added: "My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world."
Kanye and Drake's relationship became strained earlier this year amid rumours Drizzy rapped about sleeping with Kim on his track In My Feelings and Kanye told fellow rapper Pusha T about Drake's secret son.
Kanye's most recent Twitter outburst began when he revealed Drake's team asked for permission to release a song they collaborated on.
Still reeling from Drake dissing his Yeezy 350 trainers on his track with French Montana, No Stylist, Kanye accused the star of "trying to take food out of his kids' mouths".
Ye shared the request from Drake's team for their song Say What's Real and followed it with: "Still need that apology for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths."
The former friends' beef is deeper than a dig at a pair of shoes, however.
Drake was convinced Kanye told his rival Pusha T about his secret son, leading to the latter releasing diss track Story of Adidon which outed Drizzy as a parent.
Kanye insisted he wasn't the one who leaked the info and claims he's been trying to settle their differences face to face for the past six months.
To make things worse, many music fans believe Drake insinuated he'd slept with Kanye's wife Kim on his track In My Feelings.
On the track he he rapped about having sex with a woman called Kiki, which is Kim's family nickname.
Kanye already released a string of Instagram videos calling Drake out over the controversial lyrics, but clearly his clips didn't resolve the problem.
In his most recent outburst, Kanye wrote: "I told you I ain’t tell Pusha about your son."
He then claimed Drake threatened him after seeing the tweets, adding: "So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect. So cut the tough talk."
Drake guested on Travis Scott's track Sickomode and took aim at Kanye, which didn't sit well with the designer.
Despite admitting to liking the song, Kanye hit out at Travis for teaming up with Drake, seeing as Travis is in a relationship with Kim Kardashian's sister Kylie Jenner.
Kanye, whose mental health battles have been well documented, accused Drake of bullying and slammed him for "picking on a man with issues".
Seemingly talking himself to a stop, Kanye ruled out retaliating with violence and ended on a positive, claiming he's about "positive vibes" only.
